I am a licensed and experienced ESL instructor. I have many years of experience helping students reduce their accents and learn to speak English successfully! I'd love to help you with your language goals.

About Tiffani V.

Hey There! My name is Tiffani and I can't wait to meet you and get you started on your own path to learning English, writing a novel, or reducing your accent. I have been a Freelance Writer since 1996 and an educator since 2005, specializing in English Language Learning and Writing. I'm the author of four books and thousands of articles and news stories, and I'm certified in ESL and CASAS testing.

I'm also an experienced needle artist, designer and teacher. I have been teaching crochet for more than 10 years, and I'd love to teach you how to make something beautiful using this easy, elegant craft. ***Please note that I do not assist with pattern reading. If you're having difficult with a particular pattern you found on the internet, it could be because the pattern is poorly written. I can't fix the pattern. However, I can help you learn a specific stitch that can help you in deciphering the pattern, or I can find you a better pattern to do the same thing.***

My articles have appeared in magazines and newspapers, like Yahoo! News and Pennsylvania Magazine.

I have a flexible teaching style, and my bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science and my 15+ year history in working with students with special needs, allows me to approach lessons from many different angles. No matter your difference, I am the teacher who can help you reach your goals because your goals are my goals.

I have been teaching private lessons since 2005. I'm available most days of the week (check out my calendar), and I can work with you online through Skype, in person in the Allentown area at a coffeehouse or your home. Contact me for specific details, and I'll get back to you right away.

Learning a new language, or how to launch your freelance writing career, can be daunting, but you have everything within you to be successful. I'm here to help share my gifts, education, and experience with you. Contact me today, so I can help you reach your goals and realize your dream. Blessings!

Tiffani Taught My Daughter To Love Writing!

Tiffani has been my daughter's writing tutor for several month's now, and she has helped her to overcome her obstacles and become the writer she never thought she could be!

Tiffani is professional and punctual, and she curtails each lesson directly to my daughter's needs.

I highly recommend her!
